ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (April 9, 2018) — The Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel’s Executive Chef Pam Green was recently honored as Chef of the Year by the American Culinary Federation’s Professional Chefs Association of South Jersey during the chapter’s Annual President’s Charity Scholarship Ball, held on March 4, 2018.
This honor marks the first time the South Jersey Chapter has bestowed the award on a female member of the Association.  
“Chef Green proved from day one what a true asset she would be to our resort hotel,” stated Jeff Albrecht General Manager of the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel.
“While we consider her Chef of the Year every year around our resort, we are so proud to see Chef Green recognized among her peers with such a well-deserved and distinguished honor,” added Albrecht.  
Each year the Professional Chefs Association of South Jersey’s Board of Directors selects from the chapter’s large membership of professionals, an outstanding member for overall recognition as Chef of the Year.  
In order to be considered candidates must be a professional chef and member of the chapter in good standing for at least five years; must be gainfully employed in a quality restaurant, private club or resort hotel; exhibit exceptional culinary ability; and must be held in high regard by his or her fellow chef colleagues.  On a regional basis honorees are expected to be active members of the chapter contributing their time and talents to Association events and fundraisers, and serving as mentors to student apprentices and young culinarians.  
“Chef Green is a top quality chef and has served as a tireless volunteer of her time and considerable talents to our organization for many years,” stated Kenneth B. Trout, CEC, CCA, AAC, President of the Professional Chefs Association of South Jersey.  
“In addition to being well respected among her peers, Chef Green is regarded highly throughout the community, earning her standing applause from all 350 attendees of our gala as she was awarded Chef of The Year. I took great personal joy in giving Chef Green this honor,” added Trout.
Green, now in her 17th year as Executive Chef at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel oversees all culinary operations and staffing for the business and leisure resort hotel.
In addition to her duties as Executive Chef, she has distinguished herself in the region as someone who is always willing to give back to her community.
From serving as a volunteer chef and contributor to multiple Chefs Association fundraisers throughout the year, Green is a partner in The Chef’s Supper Club, which collaborates with other culinary professionals in the region to host gourmet dining events benefitting the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s Southern Branch. Her unbridled enthusiasm to give back to her community was on full display when she repelled off the Sheraton’s rooftop in 2014,175 feet to the ground to raise funds for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Atlantic and Cape May Counties.
“I feel extremely blessed to be a part of the Sheraton family,” stated Green.
“I cannot thank the Sheraton enough for being so supportive of not only my professional growth, but of the initiatives I’m engaged in for the betterment of our shared local community, as well as the students and young professionals entering the culinary profession.”
